So many reasons-
1. Guilt and/or shame- don't want to hurt or bother the other person
3. Depression makes people not think clearly
4. Hard to be around people
5. Too many other reasons.
Usually it isn't intentional but at times it can be. For me, a lot of it is shame and not wanting to burden others. Plus I feel like no one cares so why bother opening my mouth.
I push people when I am feeling down because I dont want people to see my weaknesses, my tears and my anguish. I feel that it can be judged and I feel a little crazy on the inside, like not in control of my emotions. I dont like it, so how can someone else like me when im like this. I judge myself, so how can others whom I built this trust with, not judge me the same. Ive seen the judgement come out already in other instances, but them i find myself suffering in silence...
Because a person fels that you don't have any energy to deal with people and that you can only deal with yourself. That is why I push people way when I am depressed. I have a lack of energy to be around people when i am depressed. People should just let me be and let me sleep it off or work it off :-)
For me, it's because I don't want to bring my friends down along with me. Why should I ruin their happiness just because I can't be happy?
I don't know, most of the time I don't even realize I am doing it.
Because they think they don't deserve them, and that they are only a burden to them.
Because they feel worthless, and don't want to ruin their partners lies either. The other thing is sometimes it is a desperate plea for help.
I'm depressed right now, and I push people away because it is embarrassing to admit that I am depressed. I don't want to be a burden. So I belong to EP, here I can talk without feling ashamed!!! I am about to loose my boyfriend because he feels like he failed because he couldn't help me, he feels it's his fault, so I try not to spend too much time with him so I can act OK when he sees me! I've been depressed for 6 months and stopped answering the phone to my parents and sister because I knew they would figure it out, I "came out" to them on Tuesday, 6 months too late!!!
I don't know but if you find out please tell me. firstname.lastname@example.org, Rob
They feel like they bring others down.
Its because they want loneliness and its the best medicine to beat depression as u will come out of many new ways by urself..
People with depression tend to beat up on themselves and not do the right things to get out of the depression. I should know.
